Insights into the current varieties landscape
In which way maize grows best was the question under discussion at the AGRAVIS field evening at the group's own test farm St. Mauritz in Münster on 1 September. "Due to the cold and dry spring, maize found it very difficult to get under way. However, warm temperatures and rainfall in the course of the vegetation period ensured that at least in Weser-Ems and Westphalia, the maize is for the most part in good shape, so that an average to good harvest can still be expected", emphasises maize expert and AGRAVIS crop farming consultant Stefan Wichmann.

Apart from the maize variety selection for the next season, the topics catch crop cultivation and pasture care are also on the agenda. The field evening enables visitors to gain insights into current developments. Newly licensed varieties in 2015 will be presented, which will be compared with the tried and tested varieties already on the market. Based on this year's experiences and the results from the previous year, the AGRAVIS crop farming consultants provide practical regional and individual recommendations.
Apart from that, tests in respect of catch crop cultivation for maize crop rotation and pasture management will be explained. All visitors are then invited to discuss practical experience and test information over a light meal with the AGRAVIS experts and fellow agriculturists. The field day commences on 1 September 2015 at 5 p.m. at the AGRAVIS test farm St. Mauritz, Werse 23, D-48157 Münster. To the invitation
